The entire Baltic region was left without Russian gas


Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia were left without natural gas from Russia, as they themselves refused it. Since April 1, Russian "blue fuel" has not been supplied to the Baltic countries. This was announced by Uldis Bariss, the head of the Latvian operating company AS "Conexus Baltic Grid", which is engaged in the transportation and storage of energy raw materials.


On April 2, the Lithuanian Ministry of Energy proudly confirmed that Vilnius was no longer buying Russian gas. This decision was dictated by three factors: the unwillingness to pay for "blue fuel" in rubles, the manifestation of solidarity with Kiev and the usual Russophobia.

Lithuanian Minister of Energy Dainius Kreivis specified that the country now covers its needs through LNG supplies from other countries through the sea terminal in Klaipeda.

We have become the first EU country among gas buyers from Gazprom to gain independence from Russian gas supplies. This was the result of many years of dedicated policy in the field of energy and timely made infrastructure decisions

- said the "pioneer" Cravis.

Note that in 2021, Lithuania bought about 1/3 of all the necessary gas from Gazprom. At present, the Baltic countries, encouraged from London and Washington, are promoting the idea of ​​organizing a large-scale "gas embargo" in the EU, directed against Russia. They are agitating the EU countries to follow their example.

However, not everyone in the EU is ready to economic suicide, especially from industrialized European countries. For example, German Vice-Chancellor Robert Habek bluntly stated on the air of the ZDF television channel that he could not and would not risk the prosperity of his country, because the "gas embargo" would put an end to the economy and industry of Germany. The functionary noted that ill-conceived actions related to the termination of the supply of energy carriers from Russia could lead to stop the largest chemical plant in the world, owned by the German concern BASF.

If there is not half of the total gas supply, BASF may close. With a shortage of resources, there is a risk of energy companies migrating abroad, for example, to Asia

– Habek explained the prospects.

    If there is no industry, then gas in large quantities is not needed.

    I can NOT judge how much this picture of the MIDDLE position in the EU corresponds to the Lithuanian one, but there are many similar ones. Transport. Electricity. Finally, supplying water to homes also requires electricity. And giving water when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing is not very convenient. Do trains also stop when there is no wind? Metal is smelted only during the day?

      Well, what can I say? I am a Russian citizen of Latvia - a descendant of those who left Russia after the split of our One Church. I, like all other Russians and Russian-speakers, have been enduring all this for 30 years. Fortunately, living out the 8th decade, I continue to work with my clientele, with whom I have worked almost all my adult life. Many with whom I worked have died (by age), others have retired, many have left for other EU countries, and I continue to work, but with new generations of my clients. Somehow we'll survive this tough time. True, not all people in the Baltics are Nazis, but however, crests now, in particular, have come in large numbers to Riga, it can be seen that the husbands have done "business", here are the wives with children and rushed away from sin. The whole park in front of the Russian embassy is so dirty that MAMANIGARYU!

        What split are we talking about? - the one that was after the revolution, or with the innovations of Patriarch Nikon ?, if the first was thrown over the hill by those who had something and what could exist, and if about the second, then the country then such as Latvia is not mentioned anywhere...

    Well, such dwarf countries can get by with small volumes of gas received by sea, but let more developed countries try to do this ...
